Reviews

"Jackson delivers another quirky, Southern-based, character-driven novel that combines exquisite writing, vivid personalities, and imaginative storylines while subtly contemplating race, romance, family, and self. A searing yet ultimately uplifting look at broken people who heal themselves and each other through forgiveness, love, and the power of stories."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review), THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
"The smart-ass, no holds-barred narration by whip-smart Paula/Kali... should please the many fans of Jackson's snappy writing style."--Library Journal (starred review), THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
"Beautifully written, fascinating and deep, The Opposite of Everyone is another must-read novel by Jackson... Jackson has done a phenomenal job of weaving the past with the present and unfolding the story layer after layer. This is a masterfully written tale that readers cannot put down."--RT Book Reviews (top pick) on THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
"Part twisting suspense, part unflinching exploration of the world of abandoned and exploited girls...This is one of those books that keeps you up late reading, and distracts you from your day, as you yearn to get back to its pages. I can't recommend it highly enough."--Susan Rebecca White, author of A Soft Place to Land
"Inevitable, surprising, and beautifully layered... I loved this book and you will also."--Sara Gruen, NYT bestselling author of At The Waters Edge and Water for Elephants
"Jackson excels at weaving a wholly absorbing story with vivid characters... [she makes] some affecting points about the importance of the stories we tell to each other and to ourselves."--Booklist, THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
"The voice is hard-boiled and the plot engrossing in Jackson's new novel, a realistic, contemporary story with a mystery driving it....This is an excellent read."--Publishers Weekly, THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
"Joshilyn Jackson has written her most unforgettable character, Paula Vauss. I love her, I hate her, I want to yell at her, then laugh with her, then fight with her before drinking with her. But mostly I want her to be real. And I didn't want her story to end."--Elaine Lui, founder of Lainey Gossip and author of Listen to the Squawking Chicken
"The unconventional characters in Jackson's books often provide thought-provoking studies of love and loyalty; this must-read also contemplates the transformative power of storytelling."--New York Times Book Review on THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
